Collapse (New America Book One)

Collapse tells the tale of the breakdown of society in the very near future as it buckles under the pressure of various new threats from a deadlier Iran, to environmental disasters.

Then there is Maxwell Harris, a small town sheriff who is just trying to maintain some semblance of law and order all while dealing with his own demons. There are many others, of course, including a convict trying to rescue his kids, government officials with more than service to the country on their mind, and a pediatrician that is forced to use skills she never thought she would after medical school.…
